Guca is the name of a small village in Serbia which for over 40 years has been home to the national trumpet festival. Once a small local affair, it now pulls crowds of over 200,000 and is legendary across the Balkans. The film follows two young players, the main rivals for the coveted ‘Golden Trumpet’, both of whom learnt as boys from fathers who have also competed in a country where mastering traditional playing is still held in high esteem.
Though Guca is Milivoj’s first feature film, he is already well-known and regarded as a successful commercials director in the advertising world. He is also a commercially successful artist - both Virgin Atlantic and the Jonathan Ross Show have licensed his work. He has also produced installations for Club 11 in Amsterdam(2005), Red Cube(2002), The End Nightclub(2001), and Mezzo and Paul Smith(1999).
